Need a bigger hard drive for all of the DLC currently filling up space on your Xbox 360 HD? Microsoft finally has a solution for you! That is if you have the $129 in hard earned USD that it will take to get your hands on one. However, if you consider the 20GB hard drive is still hovering around $50 refurbished that price tag isn’t difficult to swallow.
The 250gb standalone drive includes a data transfer kit allowing you to transfer all of your precious saved data to the drive & comes loaded with an amazing array of junk such as HD game demos, videos and several Xbox LIVE arcade trials (which I’m sure most of you will remove right away). Although, if you read the official Xbox.com release info they tend to jazz that news up a bit more:
- Highest hard drive capacity available: The Xbox 360 250GB hard drive is the largest hard drive available for Xbox 360.
- Game downloads: Download game demos, Games on Demand, Xbox LIVE Arcade games, game add-ons and more from Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Keep all your game saves handy in one place with no worries about storage.
- Videos: Download hundreds of movies in standard- and high-definition, as well as television shows, independent videos, game trailers, and lots more.
- Other media: Rip CDs to the hard drive with reckless abandon and no concern for space constraints. Download music videos, gamer pics and dashboard themes, and store your own photos on the console.
The new standalone drive isn’t anything new to Japan. Fear not though, as of the 23rd it’s available from most of your favorite online retailers.
